#Socialism and #environmentalism are a perfect match. Socialism can’t result in anything but poverty, misery, and death. Environmentalism says precisely that is what’s necessary to “save the planet.” Thus, environmentalism sets a standard of success that even socialism can pass.
If socialism wins, then a few generations from now, some of our starving descendants, walking among the ruins of capitalist civilization and inspired to try to recreate some of the wonders of the past, will be stopped by environmentalism’s taboos against “harming the planet.”
The planet they will be afraid of “harming” will be one whose remaining inhabited areas are covered by and reek of the stench of human and animal waste, as was the case in the towns and villages of the Dark Ages.
This will be the standard of living achieved by socialism and the environment achieved by environmentalism. The combination should be known as “ScheitzWorld,” just as today many of our cities have already begun to deserve that modifier before their names.
